Will have the opportunity to delve into a variety of projects and gain valuable knowledge and understanding of key issues facing the nation. Interns learn many of the basic skills it takes to become a public policy professional in a progressive nonprofit from a front-row seat.

Interns may engage in research, writing, project support, and preparatory work for policy events.

Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column, op-ed or blog for the website. Should have strong research, writing, and organizational skills and should pay careful attention to detail. Law students are considered.
